The controller software has been developed by Astell for the precision control of all its autoclaves and sterilizers and contains features designed to improve both the speed and management of load cycles.
Software allows a holistic approach to pipetting quality and pipette management - easy to implement and efficient to use, better enabling labs to generate consistent results.
For perfectly aligned pipette tips every time - INTEGRA GripTips never loosen, leak or fall off, the special design ensures tips cannot be overloaded and that all tips on the multichannel pipette are fitted to exactly the same height so improving the reproducibility and accuracy of your pipetting.
The hand held Gosselin™ Pipette Controller is ideally suited for pipetting tasks during microbiological sample preparation and testing, the controller incorporates a PTFE membrane filter (0.2 µm and 0.45 µm) together with an autoclavable silicone pipette holder prevents sample contamination issues.
Rainin Pipet-Lite™ XLS pipettes and filter tips are a popular choice for researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in La Jolla, USA, where they are used for virus work, particularly experiments involving DNA and RNA studies, and it is essential to avoid any potential for contamination.
Available in 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-channel versions, INTEGRA's VOYAGER II pipettes are the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, up to 40 individual custom programs can be saved making often repeated pipetting protocols even easier to implement.
Priorclave will be exhibiting their range of low energy laboratory autoclaves at Medica 2016, in Dusseldorf 14th - 17th November, an autoclave with a clear sided panel will allow stand visitors to see inside and view the clean, structured lines of the build.
For lateral flow immunoassay developers, Morffitechnology from BBI Solutions overcomes problems associated with using BSA as a conjugate blocker ie cross-reactivity, lot-to-lot variation etc.
On booth #4 at the 4th EAVLD congress, bioMérieux will be showing their range for veterinary diagnostics including: automated media prep, ready-to-use culture media, automated Gram stainer, identification solutions, antibiotic susceptibility and hormone analysis.
Don't have enough plates to justify a fully automated robotic liquid handling system but need to run assays in 1536-well plates? INTEGRA has a new plate holder that handles 1536-well pipetting using the adaptable, easy-to-use benchtop VIAFLO 384.
A new range of autoclaves from Astell have improved appearance, operation and functionality, capacities range from 120L-344L.
Part of Priorclave's established Q63 range, the new 400 litre autoclave offers an affordable, energy conscious and versatile laboratory steam steriliser, the taller chamber profile makes it ideal for any lab needing to sterilise large, bulky items.
The VOYAGER II is the only pipette where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, spacing can be conveniently changed as you are pipetting using only a single hand.
The VOYAGER II is the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically. using a VOYAGER II pipette the number of transfer steps, compared to using single channel pipettes, can be significantly reduced.
bioMérieux will be displaying their mastitis diagnostic solution for veterinary use at the FIL/IDF mastitis congress in Nantes products on show will range from manual (ChromID®, API®, Etest®) to automated technology (VITEK® 2 Compact).
The new compact C85 laboratory autoclave (footprint just 472 x 500mm) has an 85 litre chamber and operates from a 13A single-phase supply, ideally suited for sterilising taller items such as fermentors and large capacity Erlenmeyer flasks or for large loads.
Interchangeable pipetting heads for the handheld INTEGRA VIAFLO 96/384 electronic pipettes allows optimised pipetting volumes from 0.5 to 1250 microliters with the purchase of just one base unit.
At the recent Analytica 2016 exhibition INTEGRA launched single and multichannel versions of the EVOLVE range of manual pipettes which have a unique volume change system allowing users to set volumes up to 10x times.
The Elix® High-Throughput water purification system is designed to operate at the heart of a central water purification solution, offering full connectivity, real-time remote monitoring gives access to all important water quality data.
INTEGRA has prepared an explanatory application guide that demonstrates the benefits of its electronic adjustable tip spacing VOYAGER II pipette range in transferring liquid samples between different labware formats.
